This story literally has everything I love in a manga. A fantastic main character with a wonderful backstory, an awesome leading lady who isn't just there for boob-service and actually has a great, well-rounded character, wonderful and memorable supporting characters whether they be friends or foes, stories that get rounded-out and resolved and don't just focus on getting the BRAND NEW FIGHTING TECHNIQUE!!1, a storyline that doesn't stray into sentimental or cliche and yet still tugs at your heartstrings and makes you cry and believe, and, most of all, a satisfying ending where things are resolved without it all being tied up into a neat little bow.

I adore this story. I adore it with every fiber of my being. It's a must-read for any shounen fan, for any history fan, and, hell, I'd say for any manga fan.
